No, not yet.

I see there is an extension that allows this

, but I'm an update behind on the forum to get access to this. I'll look into what it takes to go from 3.1.9 to 3.2

Edit: this may break other extensions. I'll have to do a bit of research.

I guess in the mean time you can copy/paste the quoted code/text from one thread to another, like you just did.

Werd, that is what I do when I want to notify someone.

Bigger question, do people actually look at notifications? I never do, but mostly because I read every thread so I'll see it anyways. Do people get notifications in browser or taptalk?

I got one then immediately denied Tapatalk access to sending notifications.

Haha, I don't get them as a notification on my phone. But I see a little red number up in the corner on the desktop browser that I do pay attention to so I can go directly to the thread that I'm quoted in.

I love the desktop notification flag wags is talking about. I believe I also blocked tapatalk right away as i don't get them to my phone.

I'll continue looking into it. Every extension I have installed will need to be updated and I'm not sure if they all have a new version to work on the updated platform.
